Fantastic. Seeing it on that hex like that reminds me of playing Mechwarrior to death as a kid. He would totally overheat with that gear, but with the interchangeable parts it looks well worth it. Couple SRMs...some Machine guns...Oooo just like Christmas.
Hope the rules sets for these stand up to the quality of the figures. ;D
The medium mecha is complete (except weapons) and I've finished the basics of the heavy mecha.
Basically I rescaled the medium version, and then tweaked the details. I kept the size of bolts, screws, and other details the same because I figured there should be a standard size. I don't know if this same technique will work with the light mecha, but I'll try that next.
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?
Each Mech has 4 "hardpoints" for mounting equipment. Hardpoints come in three ratings - Light, Medium, Heavy. Mechs come in three classes - Light, Medium, Heavy. A Mech can only have hardpoints equal to or lower than their class rating... depending on how you want to build it. So, yes weapons will come in different sizes...
Sounds like a good system. I was thinking of maybe having twice the number of light weapons on a hardpoint since it is a heavy mech. At least that was how I used to build them in various PC games. Not very strategic, but fun.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
